From MPS director of athletics Chad Davis:
Good morning! I hope that all of our teachers and students are enjoying a well deserved day off, as we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the legacy he left behind. There are so many great quotes from MLK that all continue to be words that all of us should live by today. Thank you MLK for continuing to enrich our lives with your powerful words and actions......have a great week Wardog Nation!
COVID19 Event Update
Our county remains in RED for this week. A mask or face covering is mandatory for everyone in attendance at any Miami Athletics event upon entry, and in the concession or restroom areas. Our seating capacities will be kept at a maximum of 50% at all home events, and tickets will be allotted for all home events with the governor's executive order currently in affect limiting overall attendance at any indoor sporting event.
Tickets will be allotted for all eligible student-athletes on the active roster for their respective sport through their head coaches. The governor's executive order limits indoor sporting event attendance to no more than 50% capacity, or to four tickets per athlete, whichever is less.
Ticket allotments are in affect at all away sites in the state of Oklahoma. Those allotments can change due to the facility capacity differences in the various schools we play in. Most schools have implemented the four ticket allotment to all indoor activities.
Our high school boys team is playing a make up game tonight at Oologah at 7:00pm. This is the only high school basketball game scheduled for the week. Both our girls and boys teams will be in action again next Tuesday (1/26/21) at home vs. Jay.
